Graduation Requirements

To graduate from New England College, a student must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Completion of a minimum of 120 credits with passing grades. Some majors may require more than 120 credits (see the catalog section for your major for specific details).
  • Achievement of a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 and a grade point average in the major (defined as all courses required for the major) of at least 2.0. Individual disciplines may have requirements which are more stringent than the general College requirement (see the catalog section for your major for specific details).
  • Satisfactory completion of all requirements in the major.
  • Earn at least 60 credits at New England College (of which a minimum of 24 credits must be earned in the senior year), or earn 30 credits in the senior year. In addition, a minimum of 12 credits of requirements from within the major must be completed at New England College.
  • By the end of their junior year, all students should file an “Intent to Graduate” form, available at the Registrar’s Office.
  • Fulfillment of the graduation requirements is the student’s responsibility. Only the Registrar (or designee) is authorized to issue official summaries of progress. To avoid unpleasant surprises, it is imperative that students check their fulfillment of requirements with the registrar’s office at the end of their junior year.
  • Students who have earned a minimum of 108 credits by the end of the spring semester will be allowed to participate in commencement if they have a GPA, both cumulative and in the major, of 2.00 or higher..
